While not a cycling-specific product, the iPhone Tripod Holder is a wonderful product for cyclists who want to take photos or shoot video with their iPhone. This little plastic device allows you to take incredibly sharp photographs because it reduces the vibration that causes blurry photos.
Your iPhone snaps into the iPhone Tripod Holder and is held securely by 3M Bumpon Pads. You can then mount your iPhone on any standard tripod (not included). I don’t always carry this little holder with me, but when I plan on shooting self-portraits I take it and a very small tripod. There are so many small tripods on the market that I don’t need to say much about them. Just go to any camera store (or even Walmart or Target) and you can find a cheap tripod that will fit in your jersey pocket with room to spare.
If you plan on shooting self-portraits, you will need to buy a camera app for your iPhone that has a self-timer. There are two great camera apps I recommend. First, there is ProCamera that you can download for $2.99. This app has so many features it would take a separate review just to hit the highlights. It is a high quality app that everyone should own. You can adjust the self-timer to anywhere from half a second up to 20 seconds. I use it so much that I put the app in the dock of my iPhone. Another great camera app for the iPhone is CameraPlus ($1.99). I use both of these apps on a regular basis and have moved Apple’s Camera app into a folder full of apps that I no longer use.
The iPhone Tripod Holder retails for $10 (plus $3 shipping). Holders are available for the original 2G iPhone, 3G and 3GS iPhones, and the iPhone 4. You can order the iPhone Tripod Holder directly from the company Website.
